Crash, Boom, Bang!

One morning last week as i was about to enter my company's premises, a lorry was moving into the entrance and stopped there. I horned at it to move in so i could do likewise. Instead of moving in, it reversed. I pressed my horn continuously but the bugger still continued to reverse. Even my colleagues at the 4th floor of the building could hear my horn loud and clear. And "BAM!", his lorry rammed into the front of my car. I came out of my car to assess the damage. Some part of the front grille was scratched. The number plate was split into two halves.

When the lorry driver opened his door to come out, i heard his radio was turned on at full blast. No wonder he couldn't hear me. Later his sister, who's my colleague, whom he sends to work every morning, told me he coudn't see my car at all. Yeah, his Nissan Cabstar

very high and my Getz

is very low. Bloody hell.

I asked the driver, "Uncle, i kept horning at you and you didn't hear at all?"

He said, "Sorry."

I got the plate replaced the same day. $15. Got the money back from the driver's sister. Left the scratched grille as it is.
